Between 1 May and 31 August, each person traveling to Mykines with the ferry must pay DKK 100 each way and if one wishes to travel beyond the small village area (this includes the hike out to the lighthouse at the end of the island, Mykineshólmur, that passes through the puffin colony) one has to pay additional DKK 250 per person . The money collected is earmarked for maintenance of the birdlife and nature on the island. The fee can be paid by visiting mykines.fo.
It is recommended that you book a local guide. We recommend that you contact one of these incoming agencies or local guides for more information if you plan on visiting Mykines.
The hike through the puffin colony which leads to Mykineshólmur is sensitive to weather conditions.
To protect the environment and birdlife in the area, this part of the hike might be closed if weather conditions are not suitable. In any case, you will be able to hike a section of the path, at least to an area that looks over the puffin colony. So don’t worry, you’ll see puffins either way!
Decisions regarding hiking on this part of the trip will be made each morning. For more information, contact [email protected].
